Need to "re-broadcast" the repaired video stream

Need to "re-broadcast" the repaired video stream

I am in a major pickle. I finally got a live stream video solution to work (using OBS)  that removes the green screen. But I use WebinarJam for my webinars, and they do not support green screen. They only take the video direct from my Logitech C922.

What can I do?

I feel like I need a setting on OBS to "re-broadcast" the modified video stream. This means that WebinarJam would display the stream, as is, which is the way I want it to look.

Am I making any sense?

What is the purpose of using OBS to modify the live video stream if it can not be used?

WebinarJam also allows YouTube live and Facebook live, which may mean I can use OBS as an input into either of those.

Please let me know your thoughts on the options available to me.

Several options...

1) Easy - stop green screening.

2) Easy - stop using WebinarJam.

3) Complex - Route your webcam audio + video through ffmpeg to a pseudo device, then have WebinarJam take it's feed from ffmpeg.

Then with ffmpeg, you can do your greenscreen replacement on the fly.

4) Complex - Do #3 with OBS, which might be possible. I'd open a GitHub ticket describing your target goal, asking for a pointer to documentation providing a suitable/related tutorial.

You'll either get flooded with links to read... or responses saying what you're attempting is impossible...

I think I will gravitate to your solution. For now, I found I can use OBS to Live Stream (green screen removed) to YouTube. Then, I can use WebinarJam for YouTube streaming.

It seems like WebinarJam goes right to the hardware on my Mac (Logitech C922).  So, might WebinarJam simply ignore the pseudo device?

I would try your technique unless i was pretty sure it was a waste of time. Is there an easy way to establish a pseudo device so I can at least test it with WebinarJam? (A blank screen on WebinarJam could be success, if my camera is plugged in and not being used by WebinarJam)

 If I can cross that pseudo device road, I would be willing to do the more complex task of routing from Logitech to a pseudo device.

So, I guess my question to you is how to quickly create a pseudo device to see how WebinarJam will react? Perhaps it's as easy as plugging in a Canon video camera via USB?
